I bet the days go quickly. The view photos are great! Seeing the progress in the Tipi has been interesting. Looking forward to your next post!

Hi Linda, thanks for checking this out. The days feel long but are easy at the same time.

The views are incredible, the pictures don't do them justice, and I wish I could get a picture of the stars at night, but my camera phone isn't sensitive enough.

I'm doing a post everyday, trying to keep it interesting.

Let me know what you think.

BRK Post 10

Got up a little late today and enjoyed some fresh air. Ran some errands in town today. Made some tuna salad for lunches for the week. Sampled some of Matt's excellent sourdough bread he made, thanks Matt. Sharpened up two hatchets from the shop because they were only good for bashing wood instead of chopping. I'm hoping to get two sharpened everyday until all of them are sharp. Then I finally got to work on my bow.

I got the face of the belly established, made the bell and back mostly parallel, ground down the knots, and marked the center line with chalk to make sure the tips line up with the center of the handle.

I think at this point I need to order sinew and back the bow with it before getting it to bend. And I need a tillering tree. And find one of the shave horses around here.

I'd like to setup at the Tipi. Making a bow at the Tipi just seems like the right place to work on this.

But I can work on the other staves before I get all of that set up.

You can always invite your photographer mother and her awesome camera skill to visit and capture galaxy shots....

Would be happy to have you. Still snowing here so you might want to wait.
 
Listen. That's my theme music. That's how I know I'm a super hero. That, and this tiny ad told me:
